Netflix docuseries ‘This Is Pop’ explores the making of music from Abba to Zapp

When the creators of the new Netflix series “This Is Pop” began thinking about how to tell the story of pop music in an eight-episode docuseries, they looked first to the model of their ongoing series “Hip-Hop Evolution,” which last year finished its fourth season on the same streaming network. That series traced the development of rap and hip-hop from a now-legendary party in the Bronx in 1973 where DJ Kool Herc set in motion a series of events that would lead to the genre and its many offshoot...

Clippers coach Tyronn Lue proving as good as advertised at game of adjustments

When the Clippers introduced Tyronn Lue as their next head coach, Steve Ballmer said he especially was impressed by the coach’s reputation as a thinker and a tinkerer. “Not that I’m an expert in game management and Xs and Os,” Ballmer, the Clippers’ owner, said last October. “But all of our staff says Ty sees the game as good or better as anybody that you’ll ever meet, which I think is awesome. “I tell you,” Ballmer added, “Ty’s my kind of guy. He wants to move, move, move, learn new things, abs...

Clippers, down 2-0 to the Utah Jazz, have issues on both ends

SALT LAKE CITY — The last time the Clippers fell behind 2-0 in a playoff series, back on May 25, they made it a point to express their unwavering confidence. Reggie Jackson wore a T-shirt adorned with a happy face to his virtual postgame news conference and signed off that night by saying: “No worries. Remember, no worries!” Clippers Coach Tyronn Lue also was unequivocally calm, shrugging off the Clippers’ first two losses at Staples Center: “I am not worried about it,” he said. “You gotta win f...

Alexander: Clippers’ task is not impossible, but it’s not easy

There are parallels, and there’s one important difference. The Clippers are down 2-0 in a series, again. They’re playing a team with a dynamic player who demands special attention, again. This time they’re coming home after losing two on the road, but those losses were to the team with the NBA’s best regular-season record. They do have a one-game winning streak at Staples Center, and the odds are it’s going to sound like a library compared to what they’ve faced in Salt Lake City this week, which...

Markieff Morris has been ‘unsung hero’ as Lakers battle without injured stars

No less a basketball pundit than ESPN’s Zach Lowe offered a mea culpa on Friday in his weekly column of ten NBA observations. The sentiment could not have been more direct. “Boy was I wrong about Markieff Morris”. For those paying attention during the Lakers’ 7-8 stretch with neither LeBron James or Anthony Davis, it’s been clear that Morris has been one of the most consistent, most steadying presences on the team on both ends. In the last 15 games, he’s been the team’s fifth-leading scorer (11....

Ahead of Lakers’ 2-game set with Jazz, injuries seize the spotlight

In another season, an alternate universe where the world and the NBA are set in their normal rhythms, the weekend would be ushering in something special: a two-game series between the Lakers and the Utah Jazz, each with a legitimate chance to play for the Larry O’Brien trophy this summer. Those teams will still meet, on Saturday afternoon and Monday night, but the billing of two Western Conference contenders squaring off is significantly diminished by the players who won’t be suiting up. The Jaz...

5 Ways Technology Helps Staying Home During Pandemic and Georgia Heat

With this Covid-19 pandemic and this heat in Georgia, there’s two important factors in staying in your home. The only times we’re leaving the house is to go grocery shopping and work.
